Matte Black Takeover

There are few areas of the home that haven’t been touched by the color black. From windows and flooring to appliances and lighting, designers and manufacturers have included black options in every accent and focus piece available for the home. In 2018, black got even more attention with a modern matte finish that has only gained steam in 2019, especially in kitchens.

The black matte trend started in appliances and, driven by popularity, spread to fixtures, like the Bar Prep Faucet from Kingston Brass, and to kitchen sinks, like the granite composite sink from Nantucket Sinks. Countertops and tiles are also available in matte black finishes, making kitchen and baths the perfect place to showcase a love for the black matte finish.

Teamed with light wood or white, black matte can add a dramatic flair to any kitchen or bath. Duo-toned cabinets work especially well with these options. Whether wood frames are complimented by black matte drawers or lower black matte cabinets are teamed with white uppers, the two-color options grab attention. Accents are important too. Black matte pendant lights, like the Crossroads Pendants from TECH Lighting, gain a modern edge in black matte and can add drama to any room.
